DAPPER DAY Fall Soirée

Join the fashionable crowd Friday September 6, 2013 for "DAPPER DAY Fall Soirée," at Disneyland® Resort.

DAPPER DAY® Events celebrate the tradition of stepping out in style. All sophisticated fashions, from vintage-inspired to contemporary chic, are encouraged.

All ages are welcome as this in not a private event. The Disney parks will be open to the public and all usual forms of admission will be accepted.

We will take a Group Picture at the Castle. Then hit the Park for some Dapper Fun.

3-4:30p THE MARK TWAIN MIXER Gather at the riverboat landing in Frontierland and we’ll all board the first departure at 3p or after for a grand trip around The Rivers of America aboard this original attraction from 1955.

8-9:30p THE SMALL WORLD TWIRL Our “Dapper Derby” won’t be happening at this event as the King Arthur Carrousel is closed for refurbishments, so instead we'll float through IT’S A SMALL WORLD and admire this iconic work of design from the 1964 World's Fair.

On Friday, September 6, 2013 Disneyland® Park is scheduled to close at 10p; Disney California Adventure® Park closing at 10p,

AFTER DAPPER DRINKS After the parks close, retire with us to these fine locations for libations: Hearthstone Lounge and lobby of Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel® & Spa, and Trader Sam's Enchanted Tiki Bar by the Disneyland Hotel pool (Under 21 patrons are not allowed inside Trader Sam's at night but are welcome on the surrounding patio.) The indoor lounge bar at Steakhouse 55 is another nearby option.

NEW - 9:30p-2a DAPPER DAY Presents FOLLY! Upstairs at Ralph Brennan's Jazz Kitchen in Downtown Disney. Multiple rooms of live music with Phat Cat Swinger, plus an eclectic DJ mix will keep you dancing! $15 at the door. 21+

Call me if your running late or need directions. [masked]  John

    What little I was able to attend was great! I think maybe 30% of the people in the park were dressed for the occasion. That is the best turnout for an "unofficial" event I've seen personally.
    I was also there with the Optimist Society, and I ended up getting my picture in the OC Weekly slide show!

    Thank you for your usual great job of hosting, John! I'm sorry I missed seeing all of you who turned up in the photos. You look fabulous, despite the stifling heat. I found the San Diego and Disneybounding groups, and then my family caught up. I had hoped to get together with everyone at Small World. It was closing for fireworks when we got there. Next time! Maybe see you Sunday.

    Dinner at Plaza Inn 5pm. Then we'll take a picture at The Castle. I was thinking since it's going to be a little warm we could do Star Tours, Space Mt. and Buzz to take advantage of there AC. Or Tiki Room, Pirates (we might get wet) and Jungle Cruise. Then Small World at 8pm. I'll see all You Dapper People Friday.

    Sounds like fun. Have a great time. Hubby won't dress up for anything. :( Plus, we don't really ride much when we go. We're the "walk around, dine, take pics" sort of Disney-goers.

    I am still planning to go... will have to travel the awful 91 fwy so will see how long it takes ... John I will call when I get there, per my usual routine !! Can't wait to see everyone Dapper or not!! I will be very light dapper with an umbrella of sorts to keep the sun off... Let's visit all the cool places - the movie theater on main street is cool so is innovations...

    For those of us that want to be there as the sun goes down or have to work..... Should we pick a second place to meet say 7 or 730? Any suggestions

  • Jennifer

    Looks like work will run later than I originally thought so I won't be able to make it to dapper day. Tomorrow is the first day back for teachers and there is just too much going on for me to get out of work in time for the event. Have fun everyone and I look forward to seeing all the pics!

    September 5, 2013
